Have you ever come across a great-looking website and wished you could get the same exact theme for yourself?
I often get asked through my Instagram DM’s.
There are so many more questions regarding this topic I’ve decided to make a this guide style blog to help you solve this problem without been a computer geek or having to have any skills in web dev world.
Now remember, just because you are used to hearing platforms like WordPress, Shopify and BigCommerce, it doesn’t mean that every website out there is using a theme. Some create their own websites from scratch and in this particular case you might not be so lucky.
So don’t think every website you come across is some theme site owners purchased under $100.
Good news is that as of 2022, 72% of the websites out there are actually theme based. So there is a good possibility of chance that the website you are seeing might be using a theme that’s customized for their unique needs.
Also don’t think that just because the website is using a theme as it’s foundation, there is something wrong with doing business with that website. I know many of clients of mine who use WooCommerce theme based websites, Shopify, BigCommerce and are making a killing in online sales. You just need to simply know how to filter out poorly made themes from quality ones.
Nowadays, there are so many greatly built website templates out there, you don’t even need to make a website from scratch. Especially if you don’t have any specific functionality requirements. The bottom line is that, there is nothing wrong with using template based websites and tailoring them to your unique needs.
So how do you find what theme the website is using?
